A 7-year-old girl with an episode of hematochezia and melena, suspicious for bleeding Meckel's diverticulum, was referred for a Tc-99m pertechnetate Meckel's scan. On dynamic planar scan, apart from prompt gastric visualization an oval-shaped, area of inhomogeneous tracer uptake was observed in the left lower quadrant of the abdomen. Subsequent single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography localized this to intestinal lumen, thus establishing the diagnosis of intestinal duplication (ID) with functional gastric mucosa...

Acute esophageal variceal hemorrhage is a dreaded complication of portal hypertension. Its management has evolved rapidly in recent years. Endoscopic therapy is often employed to arrest bleeding varices as well as to prevent early rebleeding. The combination of vasoconstrictor and endoscopic therapy is superior to vasoconstrictor or endoscopic therapy alone for control of acute esophageal variceal hemorrhage. After control of acute variceal bleeding, combination of banding ligation and beta-blockers is generally recommended to prevent variceal rebleeding...

BACKGROUND: The impact of diagnosis location on gastric cancer (GC) outcomes is poorly defined. METHODS: Detailed chart review was conducted to identify presenting location leading to diagnosis and treatment for GC patients at a single institution (2009-2013). Patients treated non-emergently following a diagnosis prompted by an ED visit (EDdx) were compared with those diagnosed at other locations (non-EDdx). RESULTS: EDdx patients comprised 52% of 263 GC patients...

BACKGROUND: Morbidly obese patients are at increased risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE) after bariatric surgery. Perioperative chemoprophylaxis is used routinely with bariatric surgery to decrease the risk of VTE. When bleeding occurs, routine chemoprophylaxis is often withheld due to concerns about inciting another bleeding event. We sought to evaluate the relationship between perioperative bleeding and postoperative VTE in bariatric surgery. METHODS: The American College of Surgeons-National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) dataset between 2012 and 2014 was queried to identify patients who underwent bariatric surgery...

Gastric hemangioma as a cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) is a rare event. We present the case of an 83 years old male with a history of abdominal pain, vomiting and melena, along with an 8 Kg weight loss. The upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed an elevated, ulcerated lesion in the gastric antrum with a visible vessel, for which he receives endoscopic therapy. In the abdominal computed tomography, a contrast enhancing, well-circumscribed mass attached to the gastric wall is observed. Due to the persistence of the UGIB, the patient suffers hemodynamic decompensation and undergoes exploratory laparotomy, where a vascularized mass is found...

OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) allows en bloc resection of lesions with R0 margins; however, it has a higher risk of bleeding and perforation compared with endoscopic mucosal resection. Surgical intervention for early gastric cancer (EGC) has been associated with an increased risk of bleeding in patients with liver cirrhosis (LC). Our aim was to assess the safety and efficacy of ESD in patients with EGC and concomitant LC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a systematic review of Medline and Cochrane database followed by a pooled data-analysis...

Meckel scintigraphy with Tc-pertechnetate was performed in a 5-year-old boy to determine whether a Meckel diverticulum containing ectopic gastric mucosa caused bleeding. The images did not reveal focal activity characteristic of a Meckel diverticulum. Unexpectedly, activity in the tracheobronchial tree was visualized, consistent with aspiration of the radioactive saliva.

Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a minimally invasive technique allowing for the removal of early gastrointestinal (GI) tumors, widely considered as a valid alternative to conventional surgery. However, ESD is technically demanding, and potentially severe complications, such as bleeding and perforation, may occur. Energy-based techniques (e.g., radiofrequency ablation) might offer a potential alternative to ESD. However, their use mandates the ability to predict the damage induced and to identify a "signature" of the complete ablation, without the need for a physical specimen...
